July Quilt Show and Sale
Weather was cooperative and we had fun showing the quilts. Here are a just a few pictures of how it looked. This was an easy way to make a fabric sign in case you ever want to do it. I used two tall garden supports and made a big pillow case. Then sewed straight lines down each side to create slots for the garden supports to slide in to. Then stuck them in the ground. We pounded tent stakes into the ground also and used twine to help support it. That worked great too. Went to the scrap bag for the lettering and fused to both sides.
The one in center back of this picture is a mid 70s Cathedral Window. It took a solid six months of sewing and a lot of 6-8 hour days. It is entirely hand stitched. Kind of got obsessed with it...
We decided to have a quilt show and sale in our garden this Saturday. Most of the quilts are mine but a few are made by family and friends. This Pineapple beauty will be hanging from our birch tree to greet everyone and was made by my friend Linda from Kauai. If you happen to be in the Sequim/Dungeness area on the Olympic Peninsula on Saturday, come by and see us. Hoping to get the for sale quilts added to the online store also. Linda's quilt is just for show. Keep your fingers crossed for a beautiful day!
